Can't install Pix PDM

I'm trying to install PDM 3.04 to a Pix 501 os 6.35 and each time I launch copy tftp flash:pdm, I get a time out during transfer.  Anybody know what's wrong?

Are you sure your tftp server is running, and that the pdm-304.bin file is in the tftp root directory? Don't forget the dash in the file name. Make sure the tftp server's firewall is turned off?
pix#copy tftp://192.168.100.100/pdm-304.bin flash:pdm

Yes, I just upgraded it to os 6.35 using the tftp server.  I would think it should still work.

Did you reboot the PIX after the upgrade and then try to copy the PDM?
You could have a corrupt pdm.bin file and may need to download a fresh copy to the tftp server and try again.

I did try that, but it didn't make a difference.  Instead of using the copy tftp process, I tried regular tftp and it looks as if it's transferring the file to the pix but it ends with bad magic number.  What is that?

Sorry, got nothing for you. Never ran into this problem.
Try a different tftp server?
